Queen's new tour with Adam Lambert to stop at the Xcel in St. Paul

Demand for the band has risen further after the recent Freddie Mercury biopic.

Fresh off the success of the Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, the remaining members of Queen are embarking on another world tour alongside guest vocalist Adam Lambert.

The Rhapsody tour will hit North America next year, with the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul counted among the 23 arenas the legendary rockers will pay a visit.

Original members Brian May (guitar) and Roger Taylor (drums) will be joined by Adam Lambert, who has provided vocals for the reformed group in several major tours since first sharing the stage with them in the 2009 final of American Idol.

They'll stop in St. Paul on August 10, and are promising a "brand new larger-than-life production."

"Queen + Adam Lambert's Rhapsody tour will, once again for them, expand the parameters of what a live music experience can be," said set designer Ric Lipson in a press release announcing the tour.

"This new show promises to be their most spectacular yet, an innovative and interactive celebration of the continued power of Queen's music."

Tickets for the St. Paul show go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m., with presale access available to members of the Queen and Adam Lambert Fan Club at 10 a.m. on Thursday.
